My self-summary
I'm finally getting acclimated to my new job and new place. I'm making an effort to meet new people and still looking for good places to get drinks and food.

I'm not quite sure how to best describe myself... I'm a smart, hardworking guy with a kind and good- hearted side. I am a great cook, I enjoy reading and working with my hands and have a decent collection of esoteric and weird crap like Pulp detective novels from the 60's. I used to live in Boston a few years ago and am looking forward to continuing to explore the city... I really just want to enjoy life to its fullest at this point and I'm looking for someone to go to art openings with. That and a decent coffee shop near my house.

I sort of half assedly still identify as an artist in spite of the fact that I haven't made any of my own in over a year... Work and other things tend to get in the way from time to time. I've got a background in sculpture and switched gears a while back to the arts admin side, the business of running artist in residency programs. Luckily I work at a University Art Center so I get my fix at work.

Sometimes INTP/ENTP, Gemini, for example at outdoor parties, somehow I'm almost always the person running the grill. I get to interact with everyone without having to be introduced and I have an activity so it doesn't look odd when I'm not talking to anyone.
What I’m doing with my life
After 9 or so years drifting aimlessly through the annals of arts organizations from Boston to Minnesota, Buffalo and Pittsburgh, I'm now working at a university art center here in Boston.

Between work, work, and avoiding eye contact on the T, I've been exploring the city bit by bit. I've really gotten into my new job but it would be nice to hang out with people I don't work with every once in a while.

Now that it's summertime I'm riding my bike to work more and more and I want to find some time to explore the arboretum and the parks around Jamaica pond some more.
I’m really good at
-Building/making/fixing things with my hands
-Cooking pretty much anything
-Writing and editing, but not spelling
-Riding my bike...

Ok now I sound like I'm 5 so I'm going to stop.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes? my hair? I don't know they usually are looking at my face, so something around that general vicinity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There is currently a moderately sized pile of art and art theory books piled on my coffee table that I am working my way through. "Hippie modernism: the struggle for utopia" "Mass effect: art and the Internet in the 21st century" a couple of those whitechapel documents of contemporary art books on Exhibition and the studio. I think. Too many books and music to list here.. I have a copy of Master and Margarita around here somewhere that is on my list to read, and I have a bunch on my phone as well.

I listen to a bunch of weird music, from 70's pre-post punk to Northern Soul, retro-futuristic french music from the 60's... I've been listening to "Vitamin C" by Can and "Obvious Child" by Paul Simon a lot recently, that and a band called Sylvan Esso. It's good I'm on a train and half awake going to work music. And there's this band Carpenter Brut that makes 80's synth pop that is amazing if you're in need of a great montage-edited break in your day

Food: I like a lot of stuff, I'm not that picky... as long as it's good. I have found some good indian food places, still looking for good vietnamese... Love soup dumplings, but never seem to make it into Chinatown anymore to get any. And I really want a good reuben right now.
The six things I could never do without
My bike, the internets, sunglasses, contacts/regular glasses, something important to work on, my camera, and um....all my teeth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the hell did I do to get that bruise, and where did I put that to-do list. I've also moved around so much in the past couple of years that I am frequently wondering how I fit into this new city.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently I've been meeting new people through work and going to art openings and bars and whatnot... but in all honesty I'm still looking for a sense of "typical." Routine has not really set in at this point.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I brush my teeth with hot water because of a Kurt Vonnegut book.
You should message me if
If you're into guys who were born on friday the 13th... or.... if you're bored and think it'd be fun to stalk someone you over the internet.

Honestly it'd be cool to meet someone who would want to go to some openings, a gallery crawl, or just run around and end up at a decent place to eat.

I don't quite know where to go to have adventures or even get a good bite to eat, so if you're down with showing someone around, Hit me up.
